This is me, giving up

City of Fallen Angels - Cassandra Clare

I set this aside a couple weeks ago when I caught a cold, because really, who needs that? And then I just...never quite got back to it. I couldn't bring myself to. It's the opposite of Pringles: Once you stop, you just want to stay that way.


It's just more of the same shallow characters, atrocious prose, predictable twists and plodding pace that marked the first three books. And honestly, even though bad books can jar me out of a book slump, it's not worth it. They're so bad. There will be plenty of bad books in the future to crack me out of a slump. I simply cannot stomach another page of Plagiarism Clare's work.
